Virtual Site Visits and Digital Guidelines

Virtual Site Visit Supplement to the 2015 Procedures

NAAB is excited to share with our programs and visiting team members the Virtual Site Visit Supplement to the 2015 Procedures that provides a framework for virtual site visits (VSV) for accreditation. This document was produced after significant research into fellow accreditors’ VSV policies and procedures and grounded in best practices for accreditation. The VSV Supplement is in effect for the fall 2020 visits under the 2015 Procedures.

NAAB Digital Guidelines

This document was first published in response to increased interest from programs that wanted to present digital content in visits. When first published, the inclusion of digital content was optional, but due the COVID-19 pandemic, and the NAAB’s decision to conduct visits virtually, the NAAB now requires digital content in all accreditation visits.
